The Sporting Director of Belgian Jupiler League side KRC Genk, Dimitri De Condé has revealed that the Club did everything possible to sell Paul Onuachu last transfer window.
Condé said the striker made his wish to leave the Club known, but somehow they just couldn’t do the deal.
Onuachu scored 35 goals for Genk last season and was voted as the Belgian League Player of the year and best African star in the division.
He attracted interest from West Ham, Arsenal, and Lyon and Atalanta, but none of the teams came forward with a concrete interest.
“We had made agreements with Onuachu and Lucumi that we would think about an outgoing transfer. That did not come about, but we are not sorry about that. That can only reinforce our sporting ambitions,” he told Genk.
“It was also very surprising for me. If you had asked me if everyone would stay on board, I would have said no.
“But as a club we have done everything we can to get this done.”
“We are very satisfied as a club, their wish to leave was only a personal ambition and never had anything to do with Genk itself. They are still very satisfied with the club and happy to play here,” he concludes.
